Storage conditions for trimethylaminomethane

Release time:


Trihydroxymethylaminomethane, as a popular type of biological buffer in the market, can not only be used in the preparation of buffer solutions in biochemical and molecular chemistry laboratories to adjust the pH value of experimental liquids required in the laboratory, but also in the preparation of materials for indoor formaldehyde adsorption, polymer coating dispersants, and virus preservation solutions for nucleic acid testing. It has also been added to commonly used skincare products.

Tris powder 

In addition, various biological buffer solutions have been derived from trihydromethylaminomethane, which can be used to prepare tris hcl buffer solutions with hydrochloride salts; TBS buffer can be prepared with hydrochloride, sodium chloride, and potassium chloride; TBST buffer can be configured with hydrochloride, sodium chloride, and tween20; TE buffer can be prepared with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid; TAE buffer can be prepared with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and acetic acid, etc.

The use of trimethylaminomethane is so extensive that it is highly likely to be purchased in large quantities during procurement. Therefore, how to store it correctly is a problem worth paying attention to. When it comes to proper storage, it is necessary to understand the properties of trimethylaminomethane: it appears as a white crystalline powder, with high purity, good water solubility, and easy moisture absorption. It is a weakly alkaline substance that has a certain stimulating effect and has a certain corrosive effect on metals such as copper and aluminum.

Therefore, the first thing to pay attention to when using and storing is to avoid direct contact with human skin. Secondly, it should be sealed and stored at room temperature to avoid moisture absorption and agglomeration, and to prevent affecting use. Finally, it should be stored separately from metal substances such as copper and aluminum in the storage room to avoid chemical reactions that may affect chemical properties. In addition, when using tris, it is necessary to prepare it as a solution. In addition to following the storage rules above, it is also important to pay attention to using the prepared solution as soon as possible.
